Casa Yoses in San José, Costa Rica

Casa Yoses is THE place for backpackers in San José, Costa Rica, with all the services you need for a price you can afford.  The whole cool, colonial building is very spacious with large rooms and a lot of common space for socializing.

All staff members speak perfect English and Spanish and are super friendly and helpful.  The location is great as well- within walking distance to downtown but away from the noise and hustle.  With a well-equipped shared kitchen and a large grocery store only two blocks away (this place is like Safeway!) you can cook all your meals onsite.  You won’t need to cook breakfast though because a tasty one is included in the price of your room!

Beautiful murals throughout the hostel

Casa Yoses showcases some great art, including some cool murals and groovy lamps.  Outside you will find hammocks and a spot to barbeque.  Inside hosts a large TV room, computer room with four machines connected to the internet, and a game room with a nice pool and foosball tables.

Casa Yoses has a great vibe and we don’t come across many backpacking hangouts as nice as this one.  You will not feel like you are “roughing it”, that’s for sure, and you will probably end up staying even longer than planned!
